This is a beautiful house made up 4 X 40ft shipping containers, arranged in a L-shape. It is perfect for a large family or a group of roommates, as it has three bedrooms and a large, living/dining room in the centre of the house.
The cream coloured panels that make up its exterior finish give it a modern appearance, while not drifting far away from the shipping containers’ original look.
Entry to the house is through the glass French door that opens up to the huge 8.4m x 4.8m living/dining room. This space fits a large dining table and sofas for lounging or watching sports.
To the right of the living/dining room are the two 3.6m x 2.4m bedrooms. They each have a floor-to-ceiling window for looking out into the incredible view. They also both fit either a large bed or a couple of twin beds, along with a dresser and sitting area.
On the left side, opposite from the living/dining room, through the door to the hallway, is the 2.4m x 3.5m laundry/utility room, where a washer, dryer and clothes-rack fit perfectly.
Access to the 2.4m x 3.5m bathroom is through the laundry/utility room, for more privacy. Inside the bathroom, the toilet and bath are separated from the double sink; convenient so more than one person can be using it at the same time.
Out the laundry/utility door and into the hallway again, we’ll find the door to the 4.5m x 3.2m Master Bedroom. This room also has its own large glass window, and fits a large bed, dresser and sitting area.
Next to it on the right, is the large 3.9m x 4.8m kitchen. This is a gorgeous space in the house, with an elegant, functional design that includes a countertop table in a semi-circle, fitting four stools for having breakfast or a quick lunch, and in the back, two large glass windows to enjoy the view outside while cooking up a delicious meal.
This Eco Home is ideal for any family or group of friends who enjoy spending their time together inside a comfortable, spacious house that will still allow for guests to visit and will not compromise each person’s privacy.
